Miss Maud Swedish Hotel - Murray Street, Perth (Australia)

So far, my travelling bags has been put to good use. First, solo trip to Bangkok, thereafter to Vietnam and Cambodia, solo again, but in a tour, alongside the rest of the people I met for the first time These two solo travel ventures were definitely an eye-opener to travelling alone compared to with friends (Malacca trip), next was this one week Curtin University training. I did feel confident, remember, I have been on my own twice, yet, honestly, I inside me I was a wreck, travelling to a new place.   

Arriving in Perth airport after 4 hours, maybe because I looked panicky, twice I was stopped for a whole list of questions. What's the purpose of my travel, where I will be staying, how long, so on and so forth. If not for the detailed documents I knew I had to sash in my handbag, I beg to differ on the consequences. Then, another not nice experience of being driven by a foreign cab driver who dropped me off across the road instead of, in front of Ms Maud hotel. I wondered why, but I didn't dare ask him, so, I struggled, carrying my big luggage and my two bags to carefully crossed the road, prior to stepping foot in Miss Maud Swedish Hotel. A traditional boutique hotel, the way to my 3rd floor room was via the small lift. Thanks to the staff who helped in carrying my things to my comfortable, cosy and single clean room that came with every other amenities and I just  loved the rooftop herb garden . o close to my room, just across my window. Awesome, nothing to complain about, honestly, no, this room  is my home for the next one week.   

Within the next 20 minutes, I walked out of Miss Maud hotel and into the cosmopolitan street. Bustling busy with all sorts of people, lined with eateries and retail outlets on both sides, it felt as though I am in Malaysia and who ever said that everything shuts down by 5.00pm in Perth?? No, not at all.

Up next - Ms Maud Restaurant.
